Remember when there was a decent chance that the golden boy with the charming smile from North Carolina might be our next President?
Neither do we!!
The defense unexpectedly rested its case on Wednesday in John Edwards’s campaign finance trial.
There was speculation that his illegitimate baby’s mama might take the stand in his defense but who knows why that never happened?
Maybe his attorneys were afraid he might accidentally call her a crazy slut again??
The prosecution spent weeks tearing into the former senator for allegedly using constituent cash to fund trysts with his Rielle Hunter. It SEEMED like she might be a good witness to refute those claims but we guess John is content playing the “at least I didn’t bang any Colombian hookers!” defense.
Lawyers make closing arguments Thursday and then his fate lies with a jury of his peers.
the jury karma convicts him on all counts, John could spend the next 30 years thinking about all he done wrong!
There isn’t much of a silver lining here, save to say his late wife Elizabeth never had to witness the lion’s share of all this drama.
